Bicycle stalls on the move to Kampala

The inner city of Uganda’s capital has been car-free since last year, partly thanks to visionary designs by Goudappel-colleagues. With the ongoing lockdown indue to corona-measures, the need for better bicycle facilities has only grown. The city requires bicycle parking facilities, so cyclists can securely stall their valuable bikes. Kampala also wishing to take on the large scale production of stalls themselves. As part of a pilot project for the city, on the 4th of September, 300 bicycle stalls were shipped to Kampala via the port of Rotterdam. Falco from Vriezenveen has agreed to contribute € 7.500 and the city of Kampala (KCCA department) arranged the other € 7.500. Iganga arranges and pays the transport costs of about € 5.000. We expect the transport to arrive in Kampala via Mombasa in the beginning of October. We will keep you informed about the delivery and placement of the ‘Twentse’ bicycle stalls and we also keep you up to date on the usage of the stalsl once in place.
